Signal Mountain will offer a great family-oriented community. I am a native of Chatttanooga for 50 years and just moved my family up to the mountain four years ago. At that time, the new Signal Mountain Middle and Signal Mountain High School opened. My husband too works downtown. His office is on Broad Street. We live in the town of Walden. I find that the taxes are cheaper here, too. My husband has about a 20 minute commute to downtown. The high school offers the International Baccalaureate dipolma. Additionally, it offers dual enrollment college credit courses with Chattanooga State. Most of these classes are transferable to several leading universities in our state thru the Board of Regent programs and at most of the state's flagship colleges thru the University of Tennessee. My son will graduate as a senior in high school this year. They have an excellent athletic program, theatre, arts too. While Signal is a great place to live there are several other suburbs in our area that offer great public schools too. Additionally we have many church-sponsored schools and other private prep school with outstanding reputations. The Hamilton County Board of Education's website is a great resource. Also, the Mountain Education Foundation is a great resource for the schools on Signal Mountain so you may want to visit their website.
